's a constitutional duty, however, the pentagon should be audited. some estimated 25 billion in savings by auditing it. i'm for it. even on the sequester talk about 800,000 civilians are going to be laid off from the pentagon. i don't believe it because the pentagon is increasing their budget as a result of this. in terms of real dollars. let me ask you this, i see four senate stars, you're one of them. and you, marco, ted cruz and mike lee seem to be the strong conservative voices that i look to to bring some sanity back to washington. now, are you all friends. >> yep, we have lunch together a couple times a week. >> and and with the whole crew and we eat together and we get along and work on different issues together and i see a lot of the freshness being new members in the senate, and the system beats you down and that's why i'm a big believer in term limits. we need more rollover, more turnover because after you've been there for a while it's hard to have the energy it takes to combat government, it's hard to combat that government. >> a lot of speculation, you might run for president. >> i know i
, pentagon personnel are working to extend certain benefits to same-sex domestic partners, but is the attempt to make the military more inclusive to one group making it discrimnator tow another. the defense secretary has ordered the defense department to extend benefits to same-sex domestic partners, haymust formally declare their commitment to each other and attest that they are of the same sex, meaning these benefits will know be given to heterosexual couples who are unmarried and otherwise meet the definition of domestic partners. >> i think this does qualify as discrimination of opposite sex couple who is are unmarried and living together. >> shannon: in the 2010 report in the don't ask/don't tell, the pentagon warned of this, saying, quote, if the department of defense creates a newing categoy of unmarried, dependent only for same-sex relationship, the department would be creating a new inequity, between couples. >> this administration is using the military for social engineering. i think it's significant they they are going beyond what they said they would do at the time that don't ask/
obama cries, oh, it's the end of the world, lay off 800,000 people, civilians at the pentagon. we should be asking questions, why the heck do we have 800,000 people working at the pentagon? aren't a few of them doing something we can do without? we neil the sequester average at it important. it's time to start cutting. we don't have a revenue problem. we have a spending prop problem, and today is the day to start focusing on it. >> neil: this is the backbone for guys who don't have a backbone, so if you cut then backbone negotiation you're just a jelly fish. we'll see what happens. craig, good seeing you. >>> if the scare tactics don't work, releasing earlies from jail will? and later, i want you to meet the beauty who begs to differ because miss new york is here on this day. how do you keep an oldr car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed you got to bring it in. if your tires need to be rotated, you have to get that done as well. jackie, tell me why somebody should bring they're car here to the ford dealership for service instead o
talk shows and defended the man nominated to succeed him at the pentagon. panetta suggested the tough questioning senator hagel faced during third's capitol hill hearing, was driven by politics. >> it is pretty obvious the political knives were out for chuck hagel. what disappointed me is that they talked a lot about past quotes but what about when a secretary of defense is confronting today? we did not see enough time spent on discussing those issues. in the end that is what counted. >> he says hagel should have been questions about issues like afghanistan, the middle east, and the looming budget cuts at the pentagon but he came underfire for past statements of israel, iran, and u.s. nuclear strategy. at least 12 republicans plan to vote against hagel while only two, so far, have said they would vote for him. that is congress ran of mississippi, and a senator from nebraska. observers on both sides thought hagel did not do such a great job at the hearing. >> disconcerting thing, obviously fox anyone that watched it, he seemed unimpressive and unprepared on the questions that he knew w

on capitol hill and his ability to deal with all of the competing power structures inside the pentagon? >> the first impression was not positive as a result of the hearings, chris, no doubt about that. it is very imperative for the new defense secretary. chuck will be confirmed in his first public outing or two to project the sense of command, thoroughly briefed, in charge of the facts to dispel the original impression created. after that the challenge to assemble around himself a strong management team because that is a big management responsibility in the pentagon. they will be going through changes and fiscal challenges even without the sequester. the proof if the the pudding will be in the eating. how does he perform as secretary of defense. can he comes out with a better impression, not such a big teal and he can put this behind him. >> chris: one of the ways the white house is trying to clear the path for two nominees, hagel at defense and brennan at cia is they have kind of grudgingly dragged out have agreed to release some of the e-mails that chart outraged the talking points w
jennifer griffin live from the pentagon with more on that. >> reporter: today the deputy defense secretary, jon, warned by the end of the year two-thirds of all army units will not be ready to fight other wars, and there won't be enough money to put out to sea a third of the navy ships. the warning comes one day after the pentagon told congress it is going to have to furlough half of its 800,000-civilian workers. the hardest-hit states, california and virginia. our team went to hampton roads, virginia, yesterday. tom taylor owns a ship repair business there. >> it's not like turning on a spigot. you don't turn it on, turn it off, you know? if it's canceled, these things are months or years in the planning stage, so if they are canceled, you know, they don't come right back, you know? so that's pretty alarming. >> i want to know when am i looking -- am i getting laid off in march or april? you're one of those people who are living paycheck to paycheck, then you're, you have no secondary plan, and that's going to be horrible, it's going to cause a lot of stress. >> i'm very concerned about t

military activity is that nobody in the pentagon would have ordered military act ship without a specific order from the president. and the president wasn't around. rick: i want do ask you both, we have about a minute and a half left. another story came out of these hearings. that is the president himself, rick, himself opposed a plan that was supported by pretty much everybody else in his administration, to try to arm the rebels in syria. what do you make of that? >> you know i think it's remarkable that his team was really recommending that we needed to do something to support what was happening there and identify the opposition, the right opposition and then try to give them some sort of military support. and the president said no. i think this goes back to exactly who he is and what he believes the inate, positive, good of people. i think he doesn't understand, the president doesn't understand, this is a dangerous world and that we need to take sides to make sure that the right people are the ones who take hold in syria. it is the same thing that happened in egypt. really the same thi
in the middle east and the looming budget cuts that could severely impact the pentagon. instead, hagel was criticized for his past statements on iran, israel and the u.s. nuclear strategy. harris? >> harris: well, steve, after what you could call a rather bumpy confirmation hearing to say the least, what are hagel's chances at this point? >> well, as it stands, at least 12 republicans do plan to vote against hagel. his confirmation, even though is he a republican himself. only two have said they would vote for him at this point. and they are mike joehand of nebraska anded that cochran of mississippi. many are predicting hagel will be confirmed. >> i think for a cabinet office, 51 votes is generally considered the right standard for the senate to set and at that level, i think he makes it but i don't think he makes it with a lot of room to spare. >> senator blunt is among those planning to vote against hagel citing too many inconsistencies, harris? >> harris: you know, stif with that margin that he mentioned the 51 votes you wouldn't need very many republicans to vote in favor, neverthe
